IRO, a high-end clothing store on the corner of 71st Street and Columbus Avenue, was robbed of more than $8,500 worth of merchandise early Tuesday morning, police told WSR.
“At 3:52 a.m., an unknown perp entered the premises unlawfully by prying the front glass door with a hammer and pushing the glass in,” an NYPD spokesperson said. “They then removed multiple racks and displays, totaling more than $8,500.”
“They seemed to know the expensive stuff,” a manager told our reporter.
The incident is under investigation. No arrests have been made.
